Based on 2009 estimates, about 1 in 72 Canadian women is expected to develop ovarian cancer during her lifetime and 1 in 93 will die from it.
It is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and, with this in mind, how aware are you of risks, signs and symptoms of this ‘can be fatal’ disease? Ovarian Cancer Canada claims that ‘Knowledge is Power’. I challenge all you ladies to empower yourself and others by spreading the word about this fifth most common cancer for women!
